I was going to have a wonderful Monday blog post. I thought I saw on Facebook that Herkimer’s Downtown Chowdown was happening in Meyers Park. Food trucks and live music, walking distance from my home. Fun!
After work I took a short run, showered and put on real clothes instead of sweats. I was hungry but reminded myself to select something not too fattening from the food trucks. This was going to be great!
Imagine my disappointment to walk down and find the park empty. What had I gotten wrong? As I turned around to walk back home, I noticed some lovely tulips in front of St. Francis Church. So as not to make the trip a total loss, I took a picture.
Then I backed up to get a shot of the statue, too.
As I took that shot, I noticed the pink flowering tree. You can just see one branch here. Naturally I had to take a picture of that.
After I got home and had a ham sandwich, I looked up the event on Facebook and learned that it is Monday, May 31st. Silly me! But at least I had three pictures for a blog post.
Full disclosure: I am making this post Tuesday morning (I never know what my WordPress timestamp says). I had my reasons for not doing this last night, but they are not very good reasons. These things happen. I feel sure that most of my readers will forgive me.
